Members of the Impact Funding Team contributed $12,235 in 2014, with their donations matched dollar for dollar by the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund to double the impact.  Members were invited to participate in meetings to develop a Request for Proposals describing the grant funding opportunity, and to evaluate and decide which of the received applications to fund with the available dollars.  For 2015, the Impact Funding Team will again focus on supporting exclusive breastfeeding – initiation, duration, or both – throughout communities in Kansas. We need your help – please join the 2015 Impact Funding Team with your donation of $500 or more to help support all the proven health benefits of breastfeeding for babies, mothers, and families across Kansas.  Together we can make a real difference in peoples’ lives. Want to learn more about last year’s program?  Read the 2014 version of the RFP here.
